ABSTRACT
Abstract  A resurgence of supracervical hysterectomies is being seen, as providers are becoming more comfortable with minimally invasive surgery. Proponents of this technique advocate that leaving the cervix prevents the disruption of proper anatomical relationships, which allows better apical support of the vagina. We report a case of cervical stump prolapse 6 months after a laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (LSH) in a 36-year-old, nulliparous, obese woman who demonstrated excellent uterine support before her surgery.
